Since I have nothing better to do, I ranked all the episodes of Cowboy Bebop from Worst to Best. I figure I'd post it here, because...why not? Funny, I could swear Bebop had more than 10 episodes. :tongue: But yeah, top 10 should suffice. Here's my rankings for comparison: 1. Knockin’ On He...

I would like Eva to rest in peace after Final (and live on through the fandom alone).

And Mushishi to get a second season. Oh wait that miracle already happened. Praise the lord.

This, also (though it won't happen).

Where's the picture of Anno where he's holding the sign that says to stop masturbating to 14 year old girls? Here: http://s14.postimg.org/3ltnrjze9/1385336915516.jpg And then there's this version: http://s14.postimg.org/gsj3r2v3l/1370755646316.png I wonder what was on the actual sheet.

The problem with that version is that he can't participate in Shinji's Helltrain, which is the point of his survival in the anime. It tells us a lot about Rei, which is kinda the point of the exercise. I don't really see that as a problem. Certainly not a bigger problem than him survivi...

Yep:

Though it's obviously jokey and probably not an accurate representation of how they'd act inside those things.

I found the manga version to be even more powerful (one of the few scenes I can say that for), especially since, you know, he actually bit the dust there.

Aldnoah Zero: Watched the first three episodes, but I think that's as far as I'll go, since, other than the solid animation and soundtrack, there's not much going for it. Story and characters are as stereotypical as mecha gets, filled with some of the worst cliches of the genre. It'...

@ Joy Evangelion: Personally I didn't find Norwegian Wood to be very uplifting at all, but it definitely moved me. Nagasawa was great and had some of the best quotes, like this one: "Where Watanabe and I are alike is we don’t give a damn if nobody understands us… That’s what makes us diffe...

Haibane Renmei - It'll seem somewhat slice of life at first, but stick with it and you'll see it meets the deep psychological criteria. Like Eva, it goes in-depth into the downward spiral of depression. Flowers of Evil (Aku no Hana) - A psychological thriller about teenage alienatio...

Hmm, Sailor Moon being unable to do anything without Tuxedo Mask telling her to do it sounds a bit like objectification to me -o-; Which is somewhat funny considering how the OP lyrics contains the line "we are not helpless girls who need men's protection" (in fact, it plays just ...

Emotional is a tricky word. Most of my favorite scenes in the series are from the End of Evangelion, but rather than reducing me to tears or making me vibrate with excitement, its scenes tend to put me in this state of quiet but profound commiseration, which, while certainly emotional, isn't rea...

Shinji seems popular enough in Japan. He was the #1 most popular male character in a 1997 Animage poll, and in a Newtype poll in 2010 he was voted as the most popular male character from the 1990s. Though the latter might be influenced by Rebuild I suppose, as he usually pops up in their polls after...

Replying to rather old posts, but what the hell. I seriously HATE that game.

Just because an author had a certain meaning in mind while writing and directing a scene doesn't mean the end result will necessarily reflect that same meaning. Certainly not to every viewer, and especially not in a scene as abstract and ambiguous as the ending to EoE. And like FFF4ever said, An...
